Happy Valentine's Weekend!
A serious case of Spring Fever forced me into my LYS on Thursday where I found this luscious Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Periwinkle Mix (62175). I was hunting for a spring color to make a second Purl Ridge Cowl.
Is periwinkle considered blue or lavender? I am slowly adding purple of any shade back into my life. Several years ago I had a boss who had this weird obsession with the color purple. She was one of the best veeps I've ever worked with, a brilliant successful woman. Anyone who ever met her knew of her deep love of all-things purple. Her entire wardrobe was purple, her office was purple, her font was purple, her hair was (sort of) purple, even her husband was purple! So I found it necessary to eliminate purple from my personal rainbow. It was Roy G. Bi, drop the v. I'm now able to tolerate and even enjoy it in small doses.
Special thanks to my DH and lifelong Valentine for the photo. He was able to capture the shade of the yarn quite beautifully.
